Pros: Beautiful lens bokeh from fairytale!!

Cons: Nobody!!

Opinion: It was years that I hunted down this lens to say the least wonderful, on the portraits has no rivals in my opinion so much that Ken Rockwel calls it the best 135mm F2 in the world, said by him I trusted got used and held very well with a decent price. I tried it on my d800e I have to say that come out wonderful photos, great Nikon, and then when you try these lenses you seem suddenly to have changed camera body and the quality that you perceive on the photos!

Pros: Image quality

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: I own both in the Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4g that its ' brother ' 105mm f/2 D DC. They are all three excellent but I have to say that the image quality of this 135 is really remarkable. I do not use the fuzzy control. It detaches in a very effective way the background from the foreground and this does not depend only greater focal length: The result is a perception of sharpness higher than that already very good test. This aspect, associated with the color rendition, makes it a truly extraordinary lens for the portrait. The construction is... reassuring, very pleasing to the touch too. The focus, at least on the DF, is perfect

Pros: Bokeh, construction quality.

Cons: It requires an update, but it would be to the detriment of the quality of assembly and materials.

Opinion: Exceptional goal. Today, only Zeiss has constructive qualities of this level. The DC is easy to use, allows excellent results, but it is not for all situations. Natural colors, exceptional bokeh. Optics designed to give the best performance in the first floors. Unfortunately, an updated verrebe of plastic, like the 105mm, so the day you want to upgrade while maintaining or improving quality, only the Milvus 135mm f2 remains.

Pros: Fuzzy; built-in Lens hood

Cons: Probably surpassed by newer optics

Opinion: Great for portraits; Pleasant even for landscapes by closing the diaphragm; Outstanding on the D700; Good on the D800 and also on D850. Excellent especially for those who think 85 and 105 too wide for portraits limited to the face. It still maintains a good value for money; In terms of absolute quality the latest Nikon 105 is superior but not enough to justify a much greater price.

Pros: Portrait lens par excellence: you have to choose carefully to avoid repentance, and the embarrassment of not being able to properly choose your own photographic tools.

Cons: Spreading purple Frange.

Opinion: A superb goal that stands out for its pictorial talents, with a glamorous glitter that represents the best you could possibly want from a portrait lens. At f2.5 it's almost as intense as 105 f2.5ais at TA. At f2.8 is equal (if not better) than 180 f2.8AFD to TA. But the exclusive bokeh of this 135 has no one, except the 85 f1.4AFD. It has deep, balanced microcontrasts that make it more decisive from f2.8 onwards. REFERENCE TO TA PERFORMANCES AT TA: f2 is clearer than you think, especially if you refer to the complaints of so many users about it. Simply, pdc is so small that you want to open, or for focal length, that the parts in focus (especially if you use the 'spot' mode) drown in the midst of huge and well-drained parts out of focus. Progressions of the blurred, therefore, delve into delightfully giving a gentle and relaxing effect to the photographs. Clearly underlining its peculiarity as a portraitist, as for other applications (where requiredTo a more stentorious and inspirational temperament, even to TA) may not be so rewarding. It should be said, however, that from f2.8 onwards it fades firmly, and f4 turns into another lens, very sharp and detailed. At f2 you just have to be careful about the flare, which tapered the photos with the usual veils, contrasts, and fire errors. DEFOCUS CONTROL: it is certainly an interesting feature, which can be useful in certain creative circumstances, but that is understood and used to exploit it appropriately. It should be set selectively according to the diaphragm in use (eg: f2, set DC, F or R, to 2. With f2.8 you set to 2.8, and so on ...). Surely an added value, though not indispensable. It is enough and advances the conventional function of this lens. RELEVANT TO AF MOTOR: Sufficient enough (a slimmer than 85 f1.8AFD) and very accurate. So lends itself to street and reportage, without any problems. WORDING TO AC AND FLARE: purple frank like it rains! I'm almost everywhere under lHigh, on clear and reflective surfaces. They are well seen even without cropping. The hood helps, but only in part. AC and flare are in the norm of the Nikon D Series, so you know what to expect if you know them. CONSTRUCTION ON THE CONSTRUCTION: optimal weight, not too heavy, not too light. Compact dimensions. There are often so-called 'noble materials' on the one hand (referring to Nikon D), and so-called 'plasticacce' by another (alluding to G) ... I know a simple difference in embossing, since the optics should be used Carefully regardless of their outside cover. The built-in hood seems an anachronistic insect, but it is rather precious, quick to operate, and there is no bayonet plugging or just screw that can compete. Really a beautiful lens, distinctive in everything and for all, with its wonderful merits, its defects, its limits.
